In the May issue of Share International, we noted a news item from the Santa Monica Outlook reporting that Californian Bill Tritt had been completely cured of AIDS. In this interview with film producer Michael
D'Addio, Bill Tritt describes the self- healing that led to this cure.

MD: Before we talk about your healing, tell me something about your medical background. I understand you're a professional in the field.

BT: I have been in medicine all of my life. I started working in a hospital at age 13 as a volunteer, became a hospital unit secretary, went into the military and became a hospital corpsman. I then went on to take an RN in nursing, combining my college education with the Naval School of Health Sciences in San Diego.

I practised in the State of California for eight years and went into administration in the John Wayne Cancer Clinic at UCLA (the University of California at Los Angeles). I dealt with people every day who were dying of
cancer and saw the techniques and medication they were using on these patients.

MD: What did you think about that treatment?

BT: I got to the point where I felt the chemotherapy was hurting people more than it was helping them. Patients would ask me, "Should I get on this experimental program in chemotherapy, or in monoclonal antibodies? Should I get on this melanoma program?"

And I found myself saying, "I can't speak to you as a doctor, and I can't tell you what to do or tell you to go against what your doctor recommends". But when they asked me what I would do if I were them, I would say that I wouldn't get on the chemotherapy or on any of those therapies because the success rate was very low.

And the damage that the chemicals and drugs do to your body far outweighs what the disease does to your body. I'm not saying that all cancer falls into that category. There's a lot of cancer that is helped by chemotherapy, like lymphoma. They have a very good success rate with lymphoma.

But with the majority of cancer, the drugs they give you are so toxic to your body that they do more damage than what the disease is doing to you.

MD: You are probably aware of documented stories of many people who have cancers that were cured - and it wasn't through conventional medicine.

BT: Right. I know about people who have refused conventional chemotherapies and conventional cancer treatments and have survived, especially in the case of melanoma. We ran a melanoma clinic at UCLA and
they had about a 95 per cent failure rate. The other five per cent did not go onto the melanoma program and never had a recurrence of melanoma again.

I've talked with a lot of people that say they switched over to a regimen of vitamins, healthy eating, massage, meditation and getting in contact with God, whatever their God might be, and got cured. God to everyone is different. I think that the people who do survive probably are more like the people who beat AIDS and survived. They did self-healing.

MD: Let's talk about your own self-healing of AIDS. First, how sick were you when this healing happened?

BT: Very sick. I had already had a near-death experience in which I left my body because I had been depleted of potassium and my heart rate was so low. I floated out of my body and I experienced a blue light that surrounded me as I progressed upward. During the time of my accelerating up, I felt very powerful, very energized, as though all the knowledge I wanted to know was at my fingertips.

Beyond the blue light was a white light, and, at the horizon, where the two lights met, was an entity in the white light. He was talking to me, guiding me. He had a lot of love, made me feel comfortable, not frightened. Someone there tried to have me come over into the white light.

But I was told "if you come into the white light, you can't go back through it into the blue light and into your body". So, I chose not to cross over to the white light.

MD: This reminds me of a quote from Cielito Pascual's article in Share International (May 1989) where George Garcia describes the experience that led to his own self-healing of Aids-Related-Syndrome: "I was floating through space... A blinding flash of white light surrounded me and flowed through every atom of my body. A wave of ecstasy, as in an orgasm, coursed through my body and I felt a tingle of electricity in each and every cell."

BT: Yes. My experiences in the blue light were very similar to what he experienced. It is an electric feeling in every cell. I think I was probably being shown I didn't have to die, that I had a choice. Because I believe that if I had gone into the white light I would have been giving up. I would have died. I wouldn't have regretted it, though, because it was a very nice feeling.

But the doctors gave me potassium and I was able to move again, and I'm glad that I was able to have the opportunity to come back. But that experience gave me an awareness; it's something that I'll never forget. And it led me to more and more experiences of detachment, meditation and out-of-body experiences, which ultimately led me to the one dream that I feel changed my health around.

MD: What was that dream, and how ill were you when it occurred?

BT: I thought it was my time. I was down to 100 pounds - I dropped from 130 down to 100 in a matter of one week and went into the hospital. I lost the sight in my right eye. I was dying, and every night I would be floating above my body and having these extensive conversations with what I called a "good" identity and a "bad" identity.

It was a review of my life, starting when I was a child, each one pointing out good or bad things about my life, with me as the judge. Every night I would talk to these entities and they would go through my whole life. And when it got to the years when I was in the Navy I was afraid because I knew I only had a short time left to discuss and that would be the end of it. Well, that's not the way it turned out.

MD: What happened?

BT: I was guided by these entities into a higher consciousness. I had a 'dream' where I was in this medieval-type setting and these knights came along and rescued me. At that stage of my illness, the only thing that was
keeping my body going along was [the drug] Deladed. In this medieval place or time, Deladed was illegal and punishable by death if you were caught with it. The knights came to my rescue and they gave me some Deladed.

They said they were going to take me to a place to be cleansed, and told me that after I was cleansed I couldn't take Deladed anymore, that I could not take drugs that were going to harm my body, and that I could not be promiscuous. They said that I had to do things that would not give me the disease again, because if I got the disease again, I would never have a chance to get rid of it.

MD: Describe the knights.

BT: There were three or four of them, and they appeared to be knights in armor - except that they had crosses on them.

MD: This makes me think of an order of beneficent knights during the last big plague, considered the worst since the Black Plague. They were called the Knights of St. John Hospitaler, and they were an order of knights in service to humanity and at that time helping victims of the plague. Over the front and back of their armor they wore white square material with big red crosses on them.

BT: That describes them quite well. It was a cloth that they had over their armor. It's kind of hard to zoom in on whether the cloth was white and the cross was red. I know there was a cloth and a cross. And I immediately
identified with them as people who were going to help. Although I was fully aware of what was happening to me, I didn't know where I was.

I just knew that I was there, that I was sick, and that I didn't have any medication. There was a very warm feeling as I heard the knights approach on horseback and when I saw them, and I saw the cross over their armor, I felt a sense of comfort and knew they were going to help. The Deladed they gave me got me well enough for them to take me to the cleansing machine.

MD: Cleansing machine?

BT: Like an electrical machine, with lights and everything. The actual machine was big - about six feet by six feet. Your energy went into one side (which was small and narrow), and you (your energy, that is) came out the
other side in a long, cylinder-like tube. There was an orgasmic feeling going through this.

I knew that it was a psychic or cosmic kind of experience that I was having. And when I came out, I felt 10, 15 years younger, more vital, more healthy. Like I was before I became ill. I knew that the disease was
gone. And that's when I woke up in my hospital bed and found my eyesight was back.

MD: How do you think this healing process worked?

BT: Well, it wasn't actually like putting your physical body into this machine; it took energy. You put your body's energy and your mind's energy into it and it super-charges you, and when you get back to your body from detachment, you take that charge with you. It heals your body. I believe that's what happened to me.

MD: You say you got your eyesight back. How long had it been gone?

BT: Oh, it had been gone for, I would say, about four days.

MD: How long was it before the doctors verified what you knew?

BT: Well, I told the doctors that my eyesight was coming back. And, of course, they had to confirm it. They sent the eye doctor in the same day, took blood the same day, and they also took the spinal tap the same day. And they had the preliminary results on the blood the next day. My blood was clear.

Two days later they had the results from the spinal fluid, saying the disease no longer existed there. When you have AIDS, by the way, you can feel the virus existing in your body and you know it's there. My life didn't pass before my eyes anymore; the conversations with the entities totally went away.

I knew the disease was gone. But though you can feel that it's gone, you're still wrapped up in the medical view of things, and so at first you want to have verification. But when they told me it was gone, saying at the same time, "It doesn't mean that it's completely gone; it may come back," I didn't believe that.

MD: Were you then completely well?

BT: Because you've been sick for a long time, it takes as long to get better again. Within four days of the occurrence, I was out of the hospital and came home. I had a sick spell while I was at home, but that was mainly because of the drugs they had me on. You can't just stop taking narcotic drugs because you'll go through withdrawals and you can die from withdrawals, too.

But, once I was able to get off of all the drugs, I started gaining weight again, getting color back, being more active. I feel great, no problems.

MD: You seem to think the drugs they give people for AIDS (and cancer too, as you said before) are as much a problem as the disease.

BT: You cannot get well with the drugs, you cannot. Because the drugs will kill you quicker than the AIDS. I'm not saying people aren't in pain with the disease or having discomfort, and some medication at that time is appropriate.

But, I think that the big mistake that doctors are making is over-medicating people. And, it's not an easy road to get well - but then, it's not an easy road to getting sick, either. So, you have to channel your energies to getting off the drugs and getting well, instead of being comfortable with what the doctors say and taking the medicine to make you feel better physically.

The body can heal itself. We only use a very small percentage of our brain as it is. So we have a vast, untapped resource. They say space is the final frontier. I think the mind is the final frontier. The cosmos, our connection with God (or whatever you believe) is open to everyone, but you have to be receptive to it.

By keeping yourself out with drugs, you won't be as receptive. People have a tendency to pay attention to what's physical, to what is in front of them. If you have a doctor telling you what steps to take, you tend to say, "this is what I should do". But in reality, people's own lives, their own minds, their own projections, are what they should listen to.

Otherwise, they are not going to get better. They are going to stay with the traditional AMA treatment for
AIDS. Hopefully there will be a serum or vaccine that will come along, but that's going to be another 10, 20 or maybe more years down the line. And there's another way to go.

MD: What does your doctor say about all this?

BT: I've had follow-up blood work and my blood is negative for the disease. My doctor doesn't know why the disease has left.

MD: Have you ever explained to the doctors that it was a mental/spiritual healing, and if you have, do you find that there is a reluctance on their part to accept that?

BT: Well, my doctor is a very good doctor and a very good listener. All he said when I told him what happened was, "You are better and we don't know how it happened. You baffled the medical community, and we are going to try to find out if there is something in your blood or spinal fluid which is the reason you got better."

It's been months, and no one has come to me and said, "Yes, we found out why you were cured", and I don't think they will ever find a physiological reason.

MD: Are you still improving, physically?

BT: Yes. I'm treating myself with natural foods, vitamins, massage and other healthy substances. And I've been getting progressively better.

MD: What advice would you give others who have AIDS and who might want to try self-healing?

BT: They should recognize that healing is not an overnight thing. You have to constantly meditate and detach. Otherwise the body will pull you down so much so that you can't take your mind out of the suffering and the misery and the thought of dying and of doom.

MD: The mind needs to take hold of the body and do what's necessary.

BT: Exactly. And when you're in a detached mode, in an out-of-body experience, you do use more of your mind than you do on the physical plane. Of course some people will dismiss this as malarkey, and say it doesn't happen. But the people who will say that are the people who don't know how
to do it.

They don't know how to make themselves relax enough, they don't know how to put themselves in a meditation mode in order to achieve the detachment and the healing process. All through history, people have healed themselves, and they haven't done it alone, but through out-of-body experience and through contact with the cosmos and the universe.

I believe if I were to become sick again, not with AIDS, but if I had a car accident or injured a leg or arm, I could call upon that divine dream again. But we should only call on that soul power when it's necessary. Not for entertainment.

MD: Are you now in touch with or have you met anyone else who has had AIDS and is cured of it?

BT: Well, I have met a few people who are in remission. They've been tested for it and it is still in their blood. But I think that they are a bridge. They are in remission but haven't quite crossed the bridge to healing themselves. Perhaps if they are made aware that other people have overcome the disease, they would be the next people to step into the healing process.

MD: Would you endorse the idea of being in touch with other people to create a kind of networking about this kind of self-healing?

BT: I would welcome hearing from anyone who reads this article or hears of cures to get in touch with the magazine so that they can pass their names on to me or to you. I think it's very important to have a group of people who have been healed to get together and speak out.

I'd also like to get the message across to people who have AIDS that they don't have to die of the disease, though the doctors will tell them that they are dying and will instill that in their minds. It's wrong for doctors to do that. People need to know that there are others like me who had the disease - had it in the central
nervous system and in the brain - and it's totally gone. As for me, I plan on living a long life and getting better every day.
